WAIT, WHAT ARE CONVERTIBLE HIKING PANTS?
Have you ever face the beating sun on the trail, and tried to roll up your hiking pants to cool down? We've all been there. That's why we designed a collection of convertible hiking pants with adjustable pant legs for backpackers around the world. Convertible hiking pants feature zip-off legs that can instantly become shorts.
While hiking pants tend to be lightweight, to begin with, convertible hiking pants really level up your style on the trail. The definition of versatility, this softshell trekking essential is quick-drying, often has sun protection, and lets you cool down without even taking off your hiking boots.
BREATHABLE, STRETCHY, AND WATER-RESISTANT? YES, PLEASE.
If you ask us, convertible hiking pants are an absolute must-have for backpacking, trekking, and everything in between. But, why are they such a staple? Tried and tested by professional backpackers and casual hikers alike, people love convertible pants for three key reasons: optimum durability, maximum breathability, and UPF 50 sun protection.
When it comes to hiking gear, excellent freedom of movement is key. That's why we designed our gear with an elastic waistband and functional back pockets (or even a thigh pocket or a cargo pocket if you're lucky.)
THE BEST HIKING PANTS FOR YOU
From the backcountry to the backyard, pick the right pair of high-quality hiking pants for you. If you're planning on mountaineering, then you should go for gear with an integrated belt and super stretch fabric for maximum range of motion. If rain is in the forecast, you'll need a moisture-wicking base layer like convertible rain pants.
The best convertible pants feature an elastane waist with a drawcord or drawstring closure. Plus, pick a pair of pants with a durable water-repellent fabric that will quickly soak up excess moisture from the skin. Spandex or a similarly stretchy fabric will keep you dry in a cinch.
Stay cool on any adventure with a pair of pants with zippered pant legs that can transform your pants into hiking shorts in seconds in warm weather.
